Desperate Housewives creator MARC CHERRY wants veteran comedienne Carol Burnett to guest star on his hit TV series.

Cherry has been in talks with Burnett's people about appearing on the show.

He says, "My dream is to get someone like Carol Burnett on the show."

If the comedic actress does appear on the show, she won't be playing a light, funny character if Cherry has his way.

He explains, "(I want her) to be kind of malignant, kind of evil, to make her go away from her normal persona."
